, gregg. one of romney en route to kissimmee for the second event of the day. all the events, mitt romney has not postponed because of hurricane sandy as it bears down on the east coast. there were three plans, they will be moved to later dates and he will join us with paul ryan in ohio tomorrow in order to steer clear of the storm. earlier today he was in the panhandle, up there talking to conservative republicans and n pens colt la, a g.o.p. stronghold. a combination of really trying to organize and rally the base. get them out to vote as well as courting moderate swing voters. to that end, more romney made a deliberate and outward overture seeking bipartisan. watch. >> we've got to do something that doesn't happen very often in washington, that is paul ryan and you are going to do what we have done before. we are going to reach across the aisle, build bridges to the other party. >> reporter: those bridges don't extend to president obama. rhetoric is getting increasingly tough. mr. romney saying it lacks to agenda and amounts to stagnation. he argues that he and paul ryan will bring abo
day. bottom line they think mitt romney flip flopped and reminded he took conservative position and moving back to middle. romney campaign said it is a the president picking on mitt romney in a petty way they say such as the rolling stone. he used the actual profanity to describe mitt romney and here is the president pressed by that from a denver station. take a lock. >> this was a conversation after an interview, a casual interview with a reporter. and the basic point that i have been talking about in the campaign. people know what i mean and they know that i mean what i say and what i care about and who i am fighting for . no further evidence than the fact of the president of the united states coming here to new hampshire a week and half before the election . only four electoral votes. if he thought it was in the bag he wouldn't come here. look at the politics average. in this state the president's average and 48 and mitt romney 47. 1.3 percent separating the men in a state that is got four electoral vote. >> they are fighting for every vote. >> no doubt about it. it is a tigh
the day before. so you worry about that. now, i talked to somebody, a senior advisor in the romney campaign after it happened and said does this make you nervous? he said, look, we tested -- tested this after todd akin and what we think people believe is just because somebody says a dumb thing they don't necessarily blame your candidate for it. but i'm not so sure there isn't osmosis at some point where you say well, it's a republican saying this and we've heard that a few times now. >> but what the obama campaign believes is any excuse to bring this up sways women toward them. i've talked to so many women voters where they do feel tugged in two different directions. maybe they do feel they are leaning toward romney because of the economy but if you get them thinking about adorgs and the social issues, then they lean back toward obama. so if they can just make these women voters have that issue at the top of their minds instead of the economy, that's what's going to sway them. gwen: here's an issue that's not on the top of anyone's mind. even though it was the subject of the final
ads every day. it's said that character is what we do when no one is looking. mitt romney thought no one was looking when he attacked 47% of americans. his company shipped jobs overseas. >> higher deficits, chronic unemployment, a president who admits he can't work with congress. >> you can't change washington from the inside. >> but he says he's had only four years. that's all mitt romney needed. he turned massachusetts around. turned the deficit into a rainy kay -- day fund. >> and they are crisscrossing the nation, attracting huge crowds in one or the other of eight key battleground states in search of a break out message. >> there is no more serious message in the presidential campaign than who can you trust? trust matters. who is going to look out for you? and here's the thing. nevada, you know me by now. you know i say what i mean. and i mean what i say. >> this is not the time to double down on trickle-down government policies that have failed us. it's time for new, bold changes that measure up to the moment and that can bring america's families the certainty that the futur
on china. but the company mr. romney chose for his backdrop that day, the company that he chose to implicitly help make that case so happened to be a poster child for success by president obama in getting tough on china. in 2009 in the first months of mr. obama's presidency, american spring wire joined with two other makers of steel wire to ask for help. they said china was unfairly dumping steel wire in the united states market at artificially low prices. they asked for help. under president obama the commerce department said they would investigate and then the commerce department did move to protect american spring wire. they did crack down on china for dumping their underpriced product. thus benefiting american spring wire in exactly the way they had asked to be benefited. they got the help they wanted. a company that was then used as a backdrop for mitt romney saying president obama had not been tough on china. today mr. romney gave a major address on economic policy. this is part of his closing argument for the presidency. he delivered the speech at a company called kinsler
romney and/or paul ryan on the ground in ohio every day up till election day. >> ten straight days. quickly here, ron, i'm always fascinated with enthusiasm in turnout for these guys. what has the turnout been like over the past few days for paul ryan? >> the turnout today has been strong. it's a great day. there are a couple of hundred folks out here. they've been enthusiastic. they are fired up about this ticket. now it's a matter of seeing who has the better ground game to get voters to the polls. >> romney and ryan, are they going to be campaigning together tomorrow in ohio? >> they will. they've got three stops across the state tomorrow on the bus. we expect that the crowds will probably are getting in fair notice the governor will be here, as well. we'll see bigger crowds than we would have otherwise. >> ron mott on the bus with congressman paul ryan in ohio. thank you, sir. do appreciate that. democrats are relying on women voters to help propel president obama to a second term. governor romney surging. he's nearly even with the president among registered female voters, a nu
's all mitt romney needed. he turned massachusetts around. turned the deficit into a rainy kay -- day fund. >> and they are crisscrossing the nation, attracting huge crowds in one or the other of eight key battleground states in search of a break out message. >> there is no more serious message in the presidential campaign than who can you trust? trust matters. who is going to look out for you? and here's the thing. nevada, you know me by now. you know i say what i mean. and i mean what i say. >> this is not the time to double down on trickle-down government policies that have failed us. it's time for new, bold changes that measure up to the moment and that can bring america's families the certainty that the future will be better than the past. gwen: and that's just what you can see. the campaign is coming down to science -- numbers-crunching, door-knocking, message-crafting science. and that extends to politics at every level, including a critical group of tight senate races. at this point does anyone really know what is going to dies -- decide all this, gloria? >> no. [laughter] loo
from the election. >> with 11 days left in this campaign. >> 11 days left. >> mitt romney's latest description of himself. >> running on a message of change. >> what this requires is change. big change. change, change, change. change. change. change. >> leave me alone i don't have the change. >> not change. it's just bush. >> there's not much there. >> he'll speck to giving speeches like he did today. >> what this requires is change. >> can you really trust mitt romney? >> trust matters. >> trust versus change. >> we need real change. >> republicans are going right back to the old, ugly playbook. >> john sununu. >> when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states. i aplowed colin for standing with him. >> congratulations john sununu. >> does it take mitt romney off. >> the more courage to stand up and say what they said was wrong. >> of course if he refused to let the media ask you questions you never have to worry about giving them answers. >> proipt will hit the interview circuit today. >> doing a total of ten different interviews.
romney expected to speak at his second event of the day here in florida. this time in kissimmee, florida. he is also rescheduling three stops that he had in virginia. those stops are planned for tomorrow. he is rescheduling them ahead of hurricane sandy. he will be campaigning in ohio instead. meanwhile, a rapid response from the governor's campaign after the president describing his opponent's economic plan like this during a stop in new hampshire this afternoon -- >> folks at the very top get to play by a different set of rules than you do. they get to pay lower tax rates, outsource jobs. they want to let wall street run wild, make reckless bets with other folks' money. >> the romney campaign responded saying, quote, today's desperate attacks are laughable coming from a president whose only plan for a second term is to recycle the failed policies of the last four years. meanwhile, we are also expecting to hear from the two men on the bottom of the ticket this hour. vice president joe biden will address supporters in lynchburg, virginia, while congressman paul ryan will make the second
the president, 49% governor romney, 44%. the poll surveyed those who will vote on election day. also polled some early voters as well. could the absentee voting situation in the buckeye state, could it change the numbers as we get closer to election day? >> oh, absolutely. at this point we've had close to a million actually cast so far. as i mentioned we have another 800,000 out. and in ohio you can still through next saturday, the saturday before the election ask for an absentee ballot application. so we've got hundreds of thousands of these coming in. and to go back to the points i made at the outset, you add all the categories of uncounted votes together and it could easily flip a 51/49, 52/48 elect the other way. >> barry, you've been covering ohio for some time. now you're more familiar with the situation than just about anyone in the country. give me odds here. give me likelihood. how do you think this thing plays out there? >> well, the polls are so close. we in fact have another one coming out in our own paper tomorrow that shows about as close as you can imagine. each of the polls in th
'll put america on a new path to a new day with a new president. obama. a new president romney, pardon me. >> time for new bold changes that measure up to the moment, that can bring the american families to the certainty that the future will be better than the past. >> reporter: speaking to a construction plant that benefitted from mr. obama's stimulus money help, he blasted the opponent. >> we're the nine million jobs that the president promised. >> reporter: president obama targeted the most loyal supporters without ever leaving washington, courting young voters now on tv. >> we now have to go directly to the source, the colleges and universities and say you have to work on cutting tuition. >> reporter: later, working on the undecideds. >> the major issue in any election, can you count on the purpose you put into office fighting for you, with a clear set of convictions >> reporter: meanwhile, the romney campaign's national co-chair, john sununu, criticized them of using stereotypes. >> how lazy, detached he is. >> reporter: backing away from new comments on cnn's questioning why colin p
: a day in the swing state of ohio. the electoral bull's eye of this political season. mitt romney working the crowds this afternoon in columbus. while barack obama pumped up his supporters in the evening in cleveland. both men receiving wild ovations. but while the crowd reaction is great, will that enthusiasm drive them to the polls on election day? even among the fervent obama supporters at this rally, this is a common theme. >> were you more excited four years ago or more excited today? >> i have to say honestly, i was more excited four years ago. >> reporter: meanwhile, fervent supporters at the romney rally often have their own nuanced motivations. are you more emotional about wanting romney to win or wanting obama to lose? >> wanting obama to lose, yes. most definitely. >> reporter: that motivates you? >> yeah. he let the whole country down. >> reporter: candidates appreciate any kind of support. but the more unconditional and enthusiastic that support is, the more likely that voter will go to the polls. and voter turnout on november 6th will be critical. romney strategists have bee
tours between now and election day that governor romney or paul ryan campaigning in this state. 15 events and all. so they are laying all their cards down in ohio. 18 electoral votes are very important. one of the things they're having to sort of overcome here is whether governor romney is of a supporter of union workers. and the job of the car industry in particular. obviously president obama signed that auto bailout package. a lot of folks in ohio and some surrounding states are very appreciative of that. they believe they still have a job today because of that bailout. governor romney, on the other hand, was in favor of a managed bankruptcy for g.m. and chrysler. and so he's got to somehow get voters to look past that, that he would be a supportive president of union workers in this state. as you mentioned, governor romney is down in florida today. we are expected after this bus tour to head down there as well. but right now the polls are looking in the president's favor. the latest cnn poll has the president up 50-46. there's still some work to be done here but we can tell you
on romney's side. what that means is in these last ten days things like that final jobs report next friday or hurricane sandy, these could make enough difference to tilt an election that is so close so soon before election day. >> well, susan, when you say it feels like 2000, does that extend to the possibility of what was reported in the "washington post" today this electoral college versus popular vote split where it could be in reverse? they're suggesting president obama could take the electoral vote and mitt romney could get the popular vote. do you see that? is that the feel when you say 2000? >> it is, alex. i think if the election were today, president obama would win the electoral college and mitt romney would win the popular vote. now, a week from now that maybe different. but i think that is the situation now judging from the national and state-wide polls. think of the consequences to that. >> oh, wow. >> i mean, obviously president obama would be the person being sworn in but republicans would also be able to claim that their ideas have wouldn't mandate from voters. and think ab
you believe that in the last few days of this campaign, governor romney is not doing some of the daytime, the nighttime interviews? he's kind of staying away from those sit-down one-on-ones? >> i think errol is broadly right, that the president is leveraging the fact he has a warm and receptive audience in some of these channels. in mitt romney's view, i think he has to connect directly with his voters rather than the filter of the news media, which i think is a very sensible for a republican candidate. >> i want to stay with you, ryan, about governor romney saying this is not completely based on race. >> and frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> i think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud colin for standing with him. >> let me read you the statement that came from john. colin powell is a friend and i respect the endo
. but among people who say they plan to vote on election day, you can see romney has the edge. guess who was in ohio last night. mitt romney. he was there with paul ryan at a big event. and i know you guys played sound from president obama on mtv, president obama was also reaching out to young voters. take a listen. >> if you're a college student looking to graduate sometime, maybe next spring, you know you've got, what, $10,000 or $20,000 worth of loans you've got to pay back. and you know how heavy a burden that might be if you did your calculation. but by the way, because of all the spending of this administration and prior administrations, you also have about $50,000 of government debt. yeah. and what's the president doing about that? why, he keeps on adding more and more and more debt. i don't understand how a college kid can vote for barack obama. >> reporter: i think it's safe to say president obama will disagree with those comments. it's a little windy right now, courtesy of tropical storm sandy, but no hit impacting us here in florida. mitt romney with three events in the state
voters. but he's losing the election day voters, 61% to 44% for mitt romney. so the romney campaign says the president's peaking too soon. do you have a read on the ground there, what's going on? >> well, i mean, the ground game is fascinating there. the president has about three times as many field offices in ohio as mitt romney does. so they're very confident they have enough people to knock on doors, make phone calls and get out the vote on election day. however, late-breaking votes tend not to vote for the incumbent. you know, we know that those voters know who the incumbent is. they haven't gone to him, they haven't voted early for him, so it could end up being a wash on election day and could be a late night. >> you got that right. how about the obama campaign calculation, amie, on this comment about boehner and mcconnell, dog walking and car washing. the gist of all this, what's the reaction? >> well, it's something you said before. i've heard him talk about it on the campaign trail. he's basically trying to send a message that once this all happens, he will be able to work with r
days to go with the race for the white house in the final stretch. president obama and mitt romney crisscross the country, hitting key battleground states. but will sandy put a damper on their campaigning? >>> and he's bringing sorry back. just a week after he said i do, justin timberlake is saying "i apologize" to his fans. we'll tell you why. today is saturday, october 27th, 2012. >> from nbc news, this is "today" with lester holt and andrea canning. live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. >>> good morning. welcome to "today" on a saturday morning. i'm lester holt. >> and i'm andrea canning. so happy to be here. thank you for having me. >> great to have you. you brought your umbrella, boots and maybe a boat. >> it's a big weekend. i love how you tell me you'll be living on granola bars the next few days. >> i'm in the middle of it. they say stock up on supplies. this could be a bad one. all eyes on this storm. >> all eyes on tropical storm sandy this morning as it slowly makes its way up the east coast. >> it was downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm. right now it's
election day, president obama and governor mitt romney are crisscrossing key battleground states, governor romney holding three rallies in florida, and president obama stopped in new hampshire and talk about his promise for the future. >> the unemployment rate is falling. manufacturing, coming back to our shores. our assembly lines are humming again. housing prices are starting to pick up. housing starts are on the move. we have a lot of work to do but, new hampshire, the country has come too far for us to turn back now. >> governor romney holding three rallies across florida today where he is calling for more partisan cooperation in washington. i'll see you again on the fox news channel at 6:00 eastern. right now we go back to "the journal editorial report",. >> welcome would to journal -- "the journal editorial report." aisle paul gigot. the election focuses on a mall group of key states but not the states either campaign or the political pundits might have expected. wisconsin, pennsylvania, and michigan, all of which president obama carried by double digits in 2008. my guess t
. and it all comes to a head. ten days from now. election day. mitt romney and the president are campaigning at opposite ends of the east coast right now. romney is hitting several cities in florida, including pensacola this hour. and later today, in kissimmee. and the land o lakes area. president obama will be in nashua, new hampshire, this afternoon. singer james taylor will be making an appearance on behalf of the president in new hampshire. both campaigns had to scrub some of their events scheduled because of hurricane sandy. paul steinhauser is live in pensacola, florida, where mitt romney is holding a rally later on this hour. just how much of an impact has this hurricane had on the travel plans of the president and candidate romney? >> it's definitely having an impact, fred, no doubt about it. today's reallies in florida are on for mitt romney but he's canceled one tomorrow in virginia beach, virginia. the same thing, jn, the vice president had a rally today planned for virginia beach that's been called. into the weekend and next week you may see more of these events canceled in the b
romney position that there should be some exceptions. >> don't you think that most people made up their minds on this issue years ago? >> they have, but it energizes people to get out on voting day to the polls. >> we will look back at romney wins and say that the first debate is as important as was the first debate in 1960 when john f. kennedy close to the experience gap between himself and richard nixon, who had been vice president for eight years. he had retreated himself as moderate massachusetts mitt and that enabled him to talk to women in suburban areas. as far as richard mourdock is concerned, and i will be very blunt, i, joe donnelly man in that race. i think richard mourdock would be a disaster. what he was stating was a consistent principle bit if you believe that god creates life, the conditions under which that creation occurred, as tragic and painful as they might pay -- he was talking about life to he was not defending rape -- >> which he tried to make clear. >> i really think it is off for grabs. the president has a good chance to take this county and this town, bu
the top. let's just say for the sake of argument he takes wisconsin but governor romney gets the state of iowa on election day. the president would still be at 265 with ohio and wisconsin, then he just needs five more. new hampshire would give him four so that's not big enough. but obama campaign increasingly thinks the latino vote in nevada would do it. that would put the president over the top there. if he didn't get nevada for some reason, the president's options would be colorado, virginia, new hampshire or florida. the president with an easier path. what about governor romney. let's leave this one blue. can governor romney get there if ohio is going blue. can romney get all the way to 270 when the president's already at 275. well, he would have to win florida, he would have to win virginia. then you're at 255, 254. he would have to win colorado. that would put him in play at 263. then from there, how does governor romney get over the top? he would if he won wisconsin, paul ryan's home state. 10 electoral votes right there. logic being if the president's winning ohio, these are two
